In an interview with Billboard, he described himself as the type of person who doesn’t stop.
“Throughout the years, I have been able to work non-stop. Several people feel I am worn down and drained by it. It, however, seems to come so naturally to me, since I’ve grown so accustomed to it. Since I have become that rock, it is normal for me when everyone else is stressed or exhausted. Tap out is something I do not know how to do. This may be why it shocks many people, since they look at each other like, ‘Hey, I just saw you today.’ I can’t stop if you’re going somewhere else tomorrow. “I simply do what I do.”Trae Tha Truth
